Nice place to grab a pint. You will find a friendly staff, the beer is cold and plentiful. Prices are reasonable.

After a week of Vietnamese food, we were pining for some basic European food. Great location, great atmosphere, and friendly service. The owner, who is an ex Brit/Aussie even introduced himself and asked how the service was. Music and sports, great beer and food, what more could a man ask for.

Ducked in here when rain kicked up. Great pub atmosphere and cold beer. Staff were friendly, and enjoyed a break from crazy Saigon streets.

We went to Bernies Irish pub in hopes of enjoying lunch. The pub was recommended by several people, but having decided to eat there was the biggest mistake of our vacation. The prices themselves were already high enough but what really annoyed us is the secretly hidden rip off. If you quickly have a gaze on the menu, you realise... More

Came here as we needed to go to the obligatory Irish bar. Drink was cold and the food was good. Had the burger which was huge and tasted good. The missus had a chicken crêpe which was a bit too sweet. Service was very good and a decent place for some good old fashioned pub grub.

If you want an Irish pub where you can sit at the bar, drink a few pints, eat tayto's and watch a GAA game, there is no better spot than Bernies. He is a good host who will have a chat with you and make you feel welcome. The pub gets lots of ex pat and local visitors. Has a... More

Bernie and Kiki have just installed a new Heineken Tap behind bar. Beer tastes great .... Just behind the Guinness! You just can't go wrong here. Entertainment on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Great atmosphere

I've been here on different trips to HCMC and enjoy the ease of eating here. It's relaxed and Bernie will greet you and share his insights on whatever topic you bring up. The beer is cold and everything I've ever ordered is fresh and delicious. If you're a Westerner who needs a place that's more familiar after working all day/week/year... More

Visited this pub after recommendations on Trip Advisor. We ate and drank here and while the stream was good for the GAA matches, it lacked the atmosphere of an irish bar. The only thing Irish about it were the Magners & Guinness. The food was delicious but for a night of craic it wasn't the greatest.
